Epiphone Les Paul Standard ’50s Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst

Epiphone Les Paul Standard ’50s Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard ’50s model is part of the “Inspired by Gibson” collection. With a mahogany body, AAA maple top, set neck with block inlays and dual ProBucker pickups, this Standard looks like a time-traveler from Kalamazoo, straight from ’58. If you want a vintage ’Paul without the exorbitant price, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard cops the vibe and sound and may become your day-to-day player. 

Epiphone’s ProBucker pickups are based on the most sought-after humbuckers in Gibson’s history—the mighty “Patent Applied For.” The Les Paul Standard ’50s features two ProBuckers with a similarly warm and fat tone.

A gloss finish highlights the flame on the guitar’s AAA maple top. Don’t expect modern weight relief—this is a ’50s Standard. It’s made with mahogany. You’ll feel it, and it’s worth it.

The mahogany neck is set with a long tenon joint for increased sustain. It has a ’59 rounded medium C-profile—if you prefer a slightly thicker neck that’s not a baseball bat, you’ll feel right at home. The updated headstock gives the ’50s Les Paul Standard a new identity that fits with its vintage styling. The Epiphone logo is inlayed with mother of pearl.

The Les Paul Standard utilizes ’50s-style wiring, dual volume and tone controls with gold top-hat knobs, trapezoid fret markers, and vintage deluxe tuners.

Over the past 6 decades, the Les Paul Standard has reached iconic status, and for good reason. If you want a killer-looking ’Paul with vintage features, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard ’50s is a winner.
